User Profile
I am 19 and am a week and a half late on my period. Last week I went to the doctors and they provided a negative urine exam. I took a home test yesterday and it turned out negative as well. I have experienced Headaches, Nausea, and my breast always feel "cold" I had sex but he was wearing a condom, and we didn\'t notice anything unusual. Could I be pregnant?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
5-10 days delay in periods is considered to be normal. If you have not got your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you have got abnormal periods, or if you develop any new symptoms, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Sometimes, urine pregnancy tests can keep showing false negative results, blood/serum beat HCG estimations are accurate.
If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be needed to look for the underlying cause for your absent periods. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get your periods and regulate them.
If you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods) as well as regulate your periods. Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
